Kamen Rider Build Episode 11: Birth Of Kamen Rider Cross-Z

Image
This week's Kamen Rider finally gives us what was long awaited (or not) transformation of Ryuga Banjo. He is now the secondary Kamen Rider though I wonder how will the other bottles be retrieved. 
Gentoku meets with everyone where he serves as the acting Prime Minister of Touto. He may have set everything up himself. Blood Stark rudely intrudes which leads to yet another conflict. Just what in the world is Blood Stark up to?

Something is not quite right with how Sento is burned up. Suddenly, Blood Stark helps them for now. I have a feeling Blood Stark will be a troll for several more episodes to come.

Misora discovers the dark secret of Sawa. Sawa is a spy sent by the Heavy Industries. So what's with Sawa doing what she did? Does she have a dark secret? I assume someone in her family must be held hostage or she allies herself with Faust (indirectly) for some money. I was even prepared to see her die like Yukari Tsukikage the Gorgom-allied actress in the second episode of Kame…

My Thoughts On The "While You Were Sleeping" Finale

Yes it's the finale and I was prepared for a bad ending. I still couldn't forget I wanted to smash my LCD screen with my hand when I saw Suzy Bae's character die in Gu Family Book. The scene of Hong Joo in the hospital had me already scared since my first Korean TV series to watch was Autumn in My Heart which I may consider rewatching anytime soon. Anyway, here's how the finale goes and I'm pretty mixed about it. 
The trial really has Woo Tak testifying which further helps create the lead to condemn Yo-BUMMER as a dirty lawyer. This is also where it's revealed by Chief Choi that Yo-BUMMER is planning to flee South Korea soon. I'd assume that maybe, just maybe Yo-BUMMER is planning to flee to North Korea. Anyway, things get pretty intense here. 
Yup, I can feel through Hong Joo's tears. This scene really made me wish I was there to comfort her or the ghosts of the Akibarangers (which is JUST impossible) would sympathize over…

Yes, we're going to have the finale tomorrow and it's going to be intense. Last week's episode was pretty intense which was really thrilling. I even assumed Hong Joo the protagonist would die. But not the way things unfolded.
Jae Chan goes and rescues Hong Joo. The IV poison would kill anyone in five minutes but there was a one minute grace. Yes, Hong Joo is saved at the very last minute which puzzles me. I'm no medical expert so I don't know how to explain this one. But I'm glad Hong Joo's saved then we do have another scene that makes me think how the main villain knows how to play his cards.
I really find it amazing how Yo-BUMMER inflicted harm to himself with some dangerous drug. He makes up another convincing story to hide the truth. Yes, he murdered the IV Serial Killer to hide his own activities. This is a real good acting that deceives everyone. that's what makes Yo-BUMMER such a dangerous threat.

This makes it…

Kamen Rider Build Episode 10: Technology Of Destruction

Last week's episode felt pretty slow. Now, I think this is one episode that manages to come up with something more fast-paced. It also reveals some interesting things about Faust's mysterious structure.
The episode has all three ministers wanting the Pandora's Box. The box itself contains a dangerous power which soon traps the three ministers inside. 
What's revealed is an inside job done by Nariaki Utsumi and Eita Kawai. This is a deadly inside job which could spell the whole end of Japan under the Skywall disaster.

It's not known exactly how we could classify Jusaburo and Sawa as of late. Will they end up getting betrayed and killed by Faust? Will they get more than what they bargain for? They may not be totally aware they're actually working for an evil organization. If so, we should expect to see them go away anytime. 

There's some in-fighting within Faust which I think is interesting. So who's the traitor in which? Faust is so left in the mud. Blo…

Only one more week and we're going to get a suspenseful conclusion. Things don't look so good in this episode nearing the climax this Wednesday to Thursday. I feel like preparing for the worse is always a good move when watching K-Drama.

We see more of what Yo-BUMMER has done with his crooked practices. It caused Dae Gu's father to go to jail and he was innocent. This is a very dark case involving an intravenous serial killing. I'd also be scared if I were in Hong Joo's place. This is a really dangerous thing and yes, being a reporter is no walk in the park.

Woo Tak reveals some important information that leads to the killer. This is pretty much where the suspense kicks in and anything bad could happen at anytime.

Yes, Yo BUMMER gets a visit from the real killer who is a woman. This IV Killer Lady appears talking about her tragic past and playing the victim card. It's no wonder why she wanted the evidence to be destroyed. Yo BUMMER…

Episodes 25-26 is starting to get really intense. There's a murder mystery going on and some memories of the past coming back towards Jae Chan and Hong Joo. And there's some twist from the past and the present.
We see both the leading guy and the leading lady at the beach. I think having ESP does bring certain people together huh? I even want to think of this is as a psychic rapport developed between the two. The scene at the beach developed them as a couple. I'm glad that Hong Joo easily broke off from Yo BUMMER otherwise she would have had her predicament and actual suicide.
We see a new scene of Chief Choi and Hyang Mi run into Yo BUMMER. Yes, there's Yo BUMMER again with his devilish schemes. He offers them to transfer to his law firm but for what reason? I suspect that he's trying to protect whatever dirty secrets he's had as a money hungry lawyer. I suspect that somehow Yo BUMMER may be involved in several criminal cases alr…

This episode really starts to teach me some basic understanding of criminal law and loopholes. Although I'm NOT a lawyer myself but at least, I find this episode fascinating. I thought about this murder mystery and the type of sleaze Yo BUMMER is in this episode. 
We have a book launching gone wrong. Professor Moon gets into a fight with his assistant who he uses and abuses to no end. This leads to a severe fight between them. Is it me or is Professor Moon really an idiot? The victim already warned Professor Moon of getting the whole conversation recorded yet the latter is SO STUPID to push through with it anyway. Professor Moon is later seen asking help from the series' villain Yo BUMMER.

I'm pretty interested with the relationship of Hong Joo and Jae Chan. It's possible we have a subtle Jae Chan/Yoo Tak and Hong Joo love triangle going on. Earlier, both Yoo Tak and Jae Chan themselves had a conversation on two possible outcomes. Jae Chan could quit as a prosecutor. …
